Before an issue is pushed back, could an email be sent to the  
reporter?  Or maybe a comment could be placed in the JIRA saying that  
the issue is being pushed back?

I am *trying* to be helpful when I report bugs, but if I'm doing a  
bad job I want someone to let me know.  It's hard to change if you  
don't know something is wrong.
